It seems a curious fact to me that all organisms I can think of exhibit some definite symmetry on a large scale (much larger than molecules), and in particular mirror symmetry. Since it is so wide spread, I imagine there is some deep reason for it. One thing that comes to mind, is that it might take less genome to encode. Are there any such reasons?
